Detroit Lions WR Nate Burleson, LB Zack Follett out for road game against Minnesota Vikings

The Detroit Lions have ruled out receiver Nate Burleson and linebacker Zack Follett for Sunday's road game against the Minnesota Vikings.

The team said Friday that Burleson (ankle) and Follett (concussion) did not practice and will not play at Minneapolis.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford (right shoulder) also will not play.

The No. 1 pick in the 2009 NFL draft injured his throwing arm in the season-opening loss at Chicago and missed Week 2 against Philadelphia. Stafford missed six games last year with an injured left shoulder and right knee.
